Thanks, Andrew. Maybe they actually do get a lot of work done, but we only see them when they have time to slack off. hm?

No probably not. They're always like that.

Anyways, two new ones:

I like how that last one is just packed with detail. REally sharp!

I'm thinking of switching up the format for my strip, but not sure if I want to have it be a consistent number of panels like it is now, or have it change each time to accommodate the story. Anyways, two new ones:

Well, I for one compliment the gestures and expressiveness of these characters, as well as the humor, which appeals to me. This is an example of how very simply-drawn comics can be more intimately relatable than far more complex ones, and I like it a lot! I especially like the graphic clarity of each strip, which is instantly readable. So keep it up!

Thanks so much, man. That's the choice I make at every step of the strip--how to draw something simpler without losing recognition, how to make the dialogue simpler without losing necessary detail.

yeah, thanks for the encouragement. :D

You also pace your strips exceptionally well. The scene-to-scene progression is very smooth, and believe me, that is NOT an easy thing to get down - a lot of web comics miss pacing entirely and come off clunky and awkward, but Guten Tag is not so.

I particularly like the one above where they're golfing in the snow.

Thanks again, Mr. Average. Yeah, I agonize over pacing pretty often. I think doing a 4 panel strip challenges me to get it right in such a small space, as opposed to a larger strip.
